Carolina’s Classic Culinary Scene

No trip to the South would be complete with a culinary tour of Carolina BBQ. In a city ranked as a Top 10 BBQ City in America, there are plenty of choices to taste the tangy, vinegar-based Carolina meats.

Smoky Dreams’ BBQ Pork Sandwich took home the title as the best in South Carolina, but their pulled pork, brisket, chicken, wings, and hot dogs are all award-winning. Fill your fists with the farm-to-table offerings—think house-made hot dogs, wild shrimp and grits, and home-cured heritage pork—at Bacon Bros Public House. Local favorite Tom’s BBQ has scrumptious meats and sides, but it’s their World Championship Cheerwine Sauce that brings home the bacon. For a deeper look at the heart of Greenville’s sweet and savory food scene join the Greenville BBQ Trail Tour. Two of the three stops on the tour—Henry’s Smokehouse and Bucky’s BBQ—are rated “100-mile barbecues,” joints good enough to drive 100 miles just to visit.
